Johnny Vee makes a few good points.
There was a guy on another forum that did a pretty cool thing year before last. A year after his wife passed away, he wanted to just get away.
He flew into Sweden. Rented a 650 something dual sport. They outfitted him also. Rode south thru Europe to a MotoGP round in Spain. Kept everyone kinda in the loop. Then rode back and flew home.
Europe he said was kind of weird, the countries were like the size of States here. And they all did things differently.
Italy I think he said was loose and easy. But when he crossed over into Spain it was like Gastapo land. Said in Spain the cops catch u camping most anywhere your butt gets locked up in a New York minute. France was another one. Said if u didn’t speak the language, which he didn’t, most were down right rude.
most everywhere else, said he was welcomed with open arms.
